^ nice pic, solar. It really makes me see how significant this building will be once completed, and even more so how significant park michigan could be as well.

Wow, great shot solar. How tall is this building at now? Are we about half way there? If so it will make a major impact in South, larger than I originally anticipated.

Wow. You might as well slap a tag on there and name your price.

^^yeah, it is just over half way. The building to the south is barely over 400' to give you an idea of the current height.

Is that Trump between the Heritage and Smurfit-Stone?

No, that would be the UniTrin Building I believe...



Nice pic Solar! You wouldn't happen to have a larger size available, perhaps one that's say, about desktop size?

its not tall enough to bee seen from this vantage point yet. once it starts to gain more height, it will begin to rise behind the old Prudential Plaza, just left of 2 Pru.

whoa, from a distance the cladding looks identical to what is depicted in the rendering! NICE!

It isn't visible from the Adler Planetarium yet. As I was walking back I was able to see it. Check out the Trump Tower thread for the pictures.

Sure, how big would you like it? The picture above is 885 x 390. I'm never certain on how large to size photos. My screen resolution is 1920 x 1200 which is not typical. Pretty much everything fits. I've got a bunch more photos from the Adler Planetarium and I was thinking of posting them in the 'My City Photos' section of SSP. How wide should I make them?

It has the same architectural feel also.
I had an opportunity to accomplish this mission as well. I went into the sales center yesterday and asked if I could see the rendering, and they were nice enough to do so. The agent did mention that it would be taller than One Museum Park. The rounded face that Alex mentioned, when i viewed the design, it reminded me of a sail of a ship, bulding from a gust of wind. Personally, I kind of liked the design, but I'd also like to see them add 10 stories to it.

The sales agent said height was up to the city. I'm in the process of writing an email to the department of planning now

When you ask about MP3 are you talking about Two Museum Park and Two Museum Park West Located at Indiana and Roosevelt Road and Michigan and Roosevelt? MP3 is shorthand for Museum Park Tower 3 located at 13th and Prairie.
